Wellness Advocates are student volunteers from the Office for Wellness and Health Promotion, and are available to lead CARE Workshops with student groups, including student organizations, athletic teams, Greek organizations, residence halls, etc. Faculty may also request the workshops for their classes. Workshops focus on personal and community well-being, and include:
Care and the Mind
We all experience a daily stream of jumbled thoughts, to-do lists and deadlines that stress us out and narrow our ability to perceive the beauty of the world around us. This workshop provides beginners with a peek into the profound, restorative effects of mindfulness. By focusing our attention, we can break through habitual thinking and find a more centered state of being.
Care and the Body
Our modern lifestyles mean we often spend long hours hunched over screens, neglecting many of our muscles and overusing others. Inspired by yoga and ergonomic exercises, this workshop teaches a series of movements that students can do anytime (even while sitting) to relax, refresh, and recharge.
Care and Connection
Open communication about sex is often taboo, and can be especially challenging for young adults. This workshop breaks through that harmful taboo to provide a valuable exploration of sexual decision-making, consent and communication, and their potential to cause either pleasure or harm. Students can then take that openness into conversations with partners.
The Trojan Family values a shared responsibility, not only to take care of themselves, but to support and strengthen the well-being of their USC community. In an effort to decrease bystander apathy, and embrace an ethos of helpers, this workshop builds confidence and skills to empower participants to safely speak up or step in when potentially harmful situations arise around them.
